Volunteer Maryland to Partner with 18 Service Sites Across Maryland for 2019-2020 Service Year

20 AmeriCorps Members Will Serve as Volunteer Coordinators

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Volunteer Maryland today began the 2019-2020 service year and announced 18 service sites. 20 AmeriCorps members recruited as Volunteer Coordinators of the Volunteer Maryland Class of 32 start their 11-month commitment to mobilizing and managing volunteers for each assigned service site. Volunteer Maryland partners with nonprofits, government agencies, and schools that address critical community needs, including but not limited to education, economic opportunities, and environmental stewardship.

“Every year, Volunteer Maryland aims to serve the entire state. This year, we are excited to have sites from the western mountains, across the Chesapeake Bay, and everywhere in between,” said Nicki Fiocco, Executive Director of Volunteer Maryland. “Some members move from out of state to serve specifically within the Volunteer Maryland AmeriCorps program. With the talents and motivation of the Volunteer Maryland Class of 32, we are eager to see how they move the needle on critical needs in Maryland communities.”

Two of the 20 AmeriCorps members will serve at the Volunteer Maryland Headquarters as Regional Coordinators and Peer Leaders. They will contribute to Volunteer Maryland’s capacity building, and act as direct peer support for the members serving throughout the state.

“Volunteer Maryland gave AmeriCorps members the tools and training to expand our field program and training curriculum outside the traditional audiences and field locations,” said Jamie Weiver, Site Supervisor of the Carroll County Forestry Board, one of Volunteer Maryland partners. “The nature of our volunteer opportunities has diversified since we have been able to lay a solid foundation. Subsequent activities have since focused on expanding the program into new venues.”
